Book: Witch in the House - Jenna McKnight
Jade Delarue is a modern day witch, running her ancestral home as a specialized B&B for clients who need her help with spells, or who just need a place to practice their own craft. It's been 6 years since her husband went missing, along with two of his friends, and now, on the eve of his being declared legally dead, Jade stands to inherit a lot of money, along with her friends Courtney and Annie, whose husbands also disappeared, and who also coincidentally are practicing witches. Much suspicion surrounds the disappearance of the 3 men, and so several teams of under cover investigators have been sent to make sure the three widows are legitimate.
Mason is one of these investigators, trying to keep his mind off of having been so recently left at the altar by his fiancee. He moves into Mystic Manor with his partner in the guise of working as a wildlife photographer, to see if there is any dirt to dig up on Jade. Despite her attraction to Mason, Jade believes his very presence was caused by a spell gone wrong, and both are hiding secrets from the other, as they try to fight their growing attraction (albeit not very hard! LOL!)
Are their feelings for each other true, or only because of the spell? Only the spirits know!
This was a fast, fun and fluffy read, very enjoyable, and just the thing to get me through a long plane ride to Pennsylvania last week! I recommend it if you're looking for something slightly paranormal and light to read! I will have to check out some other Jenna McKnight titles, as I think that A Greek God at the Ladies Club and A Date on Cloud Nine sound like a lot of fun too!
